The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and invigorate civic life.
We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.
Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national, and international levels – serving the best interests of the people. We partner with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations, and concerned citizens who share our interest in fact-based solutions and goal-driven investments to improve society.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Australia, Brussels, and London, and with additional staff in other regions of the United States and around the globe, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.
Safe Food Project
Pew’s safe food project seeks to modernize and strengthen federal government oversight of meat and poultry safety and to further reduce foodborne illness across the food supply by improving safety policies and protocols used by multiple federal agencies.
The senior associate, based in Pew's Washington, DC, office, will inform public policy by providing research and programmatic support to achieve the goals of the project. This will include developing subject matter expertise related to meat and poultry safety and relevant federal policies; participating in the execution of the project’s research and outreach plans; and assisting with convening meetings and stakeholder communications.
Reporting to the project director, the senior associate will work closely with the senior officer, food safety, and other Pew colleagues in communications, research, government relations, and other areas. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.
This position is expected to include occasional overnight travel for meetings and conferences.
We offer a competitive salary and benefit program, including: comprehensive, affordable health care through medical, dental, and vision coverage; financial security with life and disability insurance; opportunities to save using health savings and flexible spending accounts; retirement benefits to help prepare for the future; and work/life benefits to maintain a good balance.
